Not convinced. There's already one way to escape these things, and this 
is supported in all UAs.

I don't see how adding another mechanism will help those who can't use 
the first one properly. For instance, people unable to escape "<", ">" 
and "&" are likely also unable to get the UTF-8 conversion right.

Best regards, Julian
